an invasion of the golan heights and the east banks of the suez by syria and egypt. the surprise attacks came early this morning in the air and on the ground. >> surprise attacks. in october 1973, as richard nixon is crumbling beneath the weight of watergate, our ally israel is simultaneously surprise attacked by egypt from the west and by syria from the north. after initially being caught off guard by the attacks, israel eventually takes the upper hand. they are not only able to defend their own borders. they go on offense. they drive to within 65 miles of cairo and just 25 miles of the syrian capital of damascus. israel is on the move. and then something extraordinary happens. for the first time since the cuban missile crisis in the 1960s the united states military moves to defcon 3. for some perspective, the only other time we have been at defcon 3 since then is on 9/11. this is something that almost never happens. and when it does, it is historic and it is historically scary. and when it happened in 1973, the order to go to defcon three was not issued by president nixon. he was apparently

from syria. and a senior official said syria's president bashar assad is losing control. and north korea is celebrating it's most controversial rocket launch. i want to start by asking you about susan rice because you did release a statement, she's meeting with the president today, your statement said the president and country will be denied the opportunity to have one of the nation's most capable ambassadors serve as secretary of state. but just a few minutes ago, your colleague tom cole had this to say. >> the country would be best to find somebody who can be a unifying figure. it's unfortunate for the individuals involved but it's a smart and very clear eyed decision by the white house. >> was susan rice too divisive of figure, congressman? >> i don't think so. she's a very accomplished public servant and i think the attacks on her were unfounded and unjustified. gop lawmakers are the ones who made this distraction to begin with, relying on a trumped up attack on her for relying on the cia and following her best judgment. it shows what a difficult town washington can be when som

, damascus will follow. until then, syria's largest city is suffering. >> that was nbc's richard engel reporting. >>> this morning it's being reported that secretary of defense leon panetta has signed the order to send patriot missiles to turkey. the order is part of a nato effort to help shield turkey from chemical weapons or missile attacks coming from syria. >>> as always, let us know why you're awake. shoot us an e-mail at waytooearly@msnbc.com. >>> still ahead on "way too early" -- ♪ i made it out of clay ♪ when it's dry and ready ♪ then dreidel i shall >> that would be so much better if we didn't know that was jeremy lin and the houston rockets. the toughest competition, the classic hanukkah dreidel song. >>> also, highlights from the football game last night. that was miss what are the eagles doing? >>> and not happy with the way the politicians are handling the fiscal cliff? wait until you see how the ukraine parliament settles their disputes. all of that when "way too early" comes back.

of syria. >> have to wonder if this is also a response on the the chemical weapons fears that u.s. intelligence has discovered. >>> meanwhile arizona's republican governor anne brewer says she may seek another term even though the state constitution says her current term should be her last. brewer inherited the office from janet napolitano, she was elected in 2010 to her current term which is up in 2014. >>> in kentucky, snats republican leader mitch mcconnell has his first official challenger for 2014, and ooh no, it's not ashley judd. it's a local contractor named ed knocksbury. it's not the democrat's first time in the political ring, he ran for congress in 2010 against republican brett guthrie and lost by 25 points. >>> president obama is weighing in on the marijuana debate after colorado and washington voted to legalize it last month. he said even though the federal government has the power to enforce drugs laws in those states, they probably won't. >> it does not make sense in a prioritization point of view to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already sa

interventionist like susan rice is. >> no. >> if you want to harm rebels in libya or syria, susan rice. >> since you've been covering this so closely, take us through the evolution because president obama and the white house were so defiant. and remember that one press conference where he came out very sternly talking about how much he admired ambassador rice. how did we get to yesterday? was this all from susan rice, or was there a little nudge from the white house as well? >> well, it's unclear as to whether there was a nudge, but certainly she was reading the tea leaves. and it was pretty clear for the last two weeks that the president was not as forceful as he was on that day, november 14th. when john mccain had said very bluntly on the hill, she is not going to get confirmed, and the president then had his first news conference after being re-elected and just came out so strongly, dramatically and emphatically, he was angry, and they're still angry in the white house about the way mccain and company, they think ganged up on her. i was also told that he might not have stuck with her as long
